Lockdown has been difficult for everyone and over the past few weeks and months, we've all appreciated our exercise in many of Plymouth's outdoor spaces that little bit more.

Everyone will be relieved to be able to get out again after the lockdown but we need to think ahead before leaving home to ensure we stay safe.

COVID-19 cases could rise again if we relax too much and are not careful to follow the hands, face, space guidance when out.

Our public Remembrance Sunday service on the Hoe could not take place this year but we recorded this service from the Minster Church of St Andrew so Plymouth could remember at home.
